In addition to shooting the jump from pretty much every possible angle, Schaller's team tracked his speed on the way down, clocking him in at roughly 76mph just before impacting the water.
Although Schaller's team set up a system of air tanks to aerate the water below him, softening it for his fall, he missed the target area and landed instead on a harder section of water closer to the center of the pool, causing a minor leg injury which dissipated fairly quickly. The record, however, will probably stand for a lot longer.
